Cell Phone Restriction in Classrooms to Take Effect

Ministry of Education

TORONTO — Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education, issued the following statement regarding the cell phone restrictions coming into force. 

"Our government heard clearly from parents and educators about the growing challenge related to distracted students in the classroom.

When in class, students should be focused on their studies and not on social media.
